Why do people seem to have nostalgia for XY despite said people generally agreeing the characters are forgettable, the plot is lackluster coming off of Gen V, megas are divisive, lowest amount of new Pokemon introduced, and Kalos as a region lacks identity and struggles to stand on its own compared to other regions? I was looking around for reactions from normies and there seems to be a consensus that the games themselves are bad, but that it has a place in their heart. I don't think it's a "so bad it's good" thing. Are we just in the right time for the people who grew up with Gen VI to be the target audience for Z-A?

>gives female Pokémon cutesy heart shapes

Why is Pokémon so regressive with all this gender bullshit? Removing gender norms in SV was a step up but until we get they/them options this series will be shit. It’s 2024 and Pokémon still hasn’t gone woke enough. Also no openly gay characters in mainline series, kind of problematic if you ask me.

/zzz/ - Pokémon Sleep General
„Legendary Beasts Soon“-edition

What is Pokémon Sleep?
Pokémon Sleep is a sleep tracking app that utilizes your smartphone and/or the Pokémon Go Plus + device to record data as you sleep. In doing so, you'll be able to meet a variety of Pokémon and fill out your Sleep Style Dex.

>How do Shinies work?
If you encounter a shiny Pokémon you only need to feed it a single biscuit in order to befriend it.
>Can I play this game if there's a lot of noise where I sleep?
The game tracks sleep based on motion only; sound has no impact.
>A Pokémon I fed got full! Will I have to start from scratch the next time I find one?
Nope! Pokémon will retain the level of fullness they were at the last time you fed them.

>Team/Strength Calculator (generally a good resource)

>Simple Candy Calculator

So back in 2013 I was getting into shiny hunting and I was after a shiny Flabebe and some guy in the shiny hunting thread said he had a shiny Floette he didn't want and he'd trade it for a Ditto.
So obviously I made the trade and got my Shiny Floette, it was the first shiny I ever got and I've treasured it ever since. I feel bad for kids today, shinies are so easy to get that they'll never know how special it used to feel to have one.

Anyway I just wanna say if you're around Dermarn, maybe came back for the announcement or something, THANK YOU! Florges is still my #1 for ten years and counting!

>go to the smogon page of the pokemon you have in mind

Overview of these 6:

A menace on psychic terrain teams. The psychic typing is in reference to its hypnotic powers, strong jaw is a PMD reference. Maybe the hood's jaw gets usable fangs?

Spam bulk up and power trip. Taunt, shore up, scale shot, or substitute as needed. Krookodile should've had tinted lens as a normal ability.

Idk, just want it to be able to use its special movepool with protean while still doing its usual stuff like drain punch and knock off. Kinda cool to have a normal/ghost to switch into things before it attacks. Not in love with this one.

We trained the first one wrong, as a joke. Sharpness makes leaf blade and night slash stupid, but the rest of its physical movepool being unboosted makes this a bit less busted. Belly drum is there to go all in, or for when megas get cut again.

Learns u-turn as of gen 9, would work great with auto tailwind.

Feels like you're fighting an actual hydra; way harder to kill than the normal hydrapple. All the syrupents become one, and the candy apple breaks down into a toxic pool that they hide in.

Attention everyone.

I found the shortest Shiritori in English. (name pokemon such that last letter of one pokemon is the first letter of next pokemon. You stop when you run out of pokemon).

Here it is:
Xerneas -> Steelix -> Xatu -> Unphesant -> toxipex -> xirkitree -> Ekans -> Snorlax (dead end)

If anyone wants to try: find the longest possible shiritori. For the computer scientists, this is a longest-path problem, which is NP-hard. Still, with only N~1000 pokemon, it might be tractable to compute.

Let's speculate GAME THEORY about Legends Z-A
Screenshot_20240227_114311_ReVanced Extended
Ok. I was RIGHT and you were wrong believing that chinese fag.

It was so OBVIOUS Kalos was next.
Paldea is Spain Kalos Is France they're NEXT EACH OTHER. We even see the part of the map where they connect.

We had the Kalos starters in the SV code for absolutely NO REASON.
The Galar ones you could say it was just to not throw them off in the next title. Like they did with the Alola ones in SwSh.

Curiously just the Aura Trio is absent in the Indigo Disk.

B-but my Unova my LET'S GO Johto.

Let's go was a prove of concept.
Advertising for Pokémon GO and the franchise doesn't have enough "mascot like" Pokémon to be the stars of the game. Which would be in Johto? Marill and Togepi?


Johto is a boring region that parasites Kanto to even have a Pokémon League. Cope more.

Now; once we are in the right mindset and we have seen this game will be ALL ABOUT KALOS and no bullshit...

>The game will be set in a near future.
Not in a Violet Paradox future or futuristic timeline, more like the real time passed from XY to this game. Around 12 years.

>Trainer battles are going to be the focus
Since the game will be set in just ONE big city and not a wide open environment it's mostly obvious this game will focus a lot in trainer battles.

We can see some battles in the teaser and... Since Arceus was all about exploration and catching Pokémon, it would make A LOT of sense for this game to be just about battles.

Again the map we are in is just a city. A big one but don't expect a league or camping in the wilderness.

If anything this would be more akin to XD or Colosseum. Just with a big hub map to explore.

Also. Don't expect any HM equivalent. Again we're in a city not in the wilderness. This is a perfect excuse to remove stupid geographic limitations.

>The game will have PvP
2022 had Scarlet/Violet, 2023 their DLCs and 2024 will keep the same game.

>Preparing for the contest edition
I am kinda surprised that the last thread has made it the whole week, but I am not complaining. Since it hit the bump limit, I am making a new and (hopefully) improved one.
>QotT: What would you do with your Absol? Have it join you in battles against gym leaders? Show it off in contests? Or maybe just keep it by your side as a companion?

There sure is a lot of numbers between 10% and 50%, isn't there?

Maybe there's a fish or a bird somewhere in there. The kind that would be big enough to ride?

>Zygarde has five cores (seen in the Alola games)
>Perfect Zygarde has five colours on its chest (White, Orange, Red, Blue, Purple)
>Kalos has five plazas which could be used to split up “zones” of Lumiose
>PLA had five main explorable zones, a hub, and a couple of smaller “sets”.
>PLA had five mounts and five bosses.
It all comes together. You’ll probably receive your first core which allows you to battle with Zygarde 10% and/or use it as a riding mount, and upgrade to 20%, 30%, 40%, and eventually 50% for different functions. 100% will be tied to collecting all 95 Cells instead which may be directly part of the plot or a collectathon (you’d gain some during the main story to form the plot forms).
>But what about 60, 70, 80, and 90%!
We might instead get 25% and 75% and not the inbetweens of 10% and 50%, that’s just an example.

Why would they bring back megas, knowing that megas nearly killed the franchise for good when it was introduced? It's no coincidence that SWSH and ScaVio, the games without megas, are two of the best selling pokemon games of all time

Cracked the code
The starters in Hisui are from regions that Cynthia visited.
The only major returning character in XY is Looker, who visited Unova, Alola, and Hoenn (as well as Sinnoh, his home region)

It's too soon to get Sinnoh starters again, and as we're in Kalos we'll be catching those starters in the wild. Just leaves Unova, Alola, and Hoenn

Why Unova was Skipped
Gamefreak has no clue how they will handle future remakes. They tried their hand with ILCA and BDSP and that flopped hard so right now they're trying to figure out how they will make future remakes since they dont have the time to put resources into a gen 5 remake while also working on gen 10. This being said, a new legends game was the easiest option, a subseries that people clearly enjoyed and focusing on a region/legendary whos story was already incomplete

I'm satisfied we got the outcome we have now.

Although its not legends kyurem, it's still BY THE ORDER OF MAGNITUDES better than the hypothetical ilca bw scenario that's been thrown around. A shitty ilca mobile game tier slopmake is actively worse than getting nothing at all.

It's pretty fair as well. Kalos until now only had one pair of games, while we had 10/10 bw and bw2

Also, in the long run, I'd prefer Legends Unova to not be held back by dogshit hardware like Switch 1 is. Especially since we're working with essentially the Bethesda of the east (gamefreak).

Can someone tell me why in God's name people were expecting a new Johto game?
An Unova game? Cool. Understandable. But Johto? Why? There was literally not a single Johto related thing in SV.
Someone help me understand. I'm really confused here.

I'm honestly glad they decided to expand the scope of the Legends subseries. Much better than just "pokémon, but in the past" like people expected

Now the possibilities are pretty much endless
>Unova game set in the Dream World
>Alola game set entirely in Ultra Space
>Hoenn game based entirely around underwater exploration
>Kanto-Johto game set years after the events of GSC/HGSS

While this is Johto content, they are intended for mobile and gacha games. Who the fuck cares about this? If you think about it, they took the brunt of it but they were very civil and that is to be respected.
